From the editor…

Lucie is founder of Mondisti.com, and an avid Mondista, a term we use to refer to travelers seeking to expand their horizons and embracing what is ‘odd’ about another culture, without thinking it odious.

This site is Lucie’s response to frequent requests from friends and fellow travelers urging Lucie to create a more elaborately curated travel journal than what was possible with her frequent Facebook posts.

It serves as a repository for photos, travel notes and tips collected by her and like-minded Mondisti.

Lucie’s love of world travel was fostered at an early age; by the time she was 5 years old she’d already lived in Italy and England, enjoyed a transatlantic sea voyage to the Americas by age 10, and long ago honed the art of traveling with carry-on luggage only, including multiple RTW trips, even with some serious camera gear.

Yes, mondisti.com is yet another addition to the crowded travel blog-o-sphere, with thousands of other excellent  and helpful travel sites. Hopefully you will find here some insights, tips and stories that will seriously move you to enjoy a part of our planet you’ve always wanted to visit. What you won’t find here are travel tips masquerading as click-bait trying to sell you accessories or travel insurance.

If you have unusual travel stories or advice of your own that you’d like to share with other Mondisti, we’d love to hear from you.
